Robotics Camp

June 4–6, 2024

Come to campus ready to learn the basic principles of robotics at this hands-on camp! Using the Spike Prime, teams of participants will have the opportunity to invent, design, and build robots while learning the basic structure of computer programming. By integrating motors and sensors with the Spike microcomputer, students will program their robots to respond to their environment, react to light, avoid obstacles and accomplish amazing things. The last half of the camp will be spent using the things they learned to accomplish tasks on a FIRST Lego League mat.
Robotics campers learn how to model and create robots.
